NOMURA SAMURAI FAMILY RESIDENCE
In 1583, when Maeda Toshiie, founder of the Kaga domain, moved to Kanazawa Castle, the family of Nomura Denbei Nobusada followed him as his retainers and the family held their magistrate positions through eleven generations. The house’s two-star Michelin garden features the Kyoku-sui (winding stream) style, around which you will see a number of lanterns. In 2009, it was ranked third among Japanese gardens by the American gardening magazine “Journal of Japanese Gardening”, and it now enjoys an excellent reputation around the world.
